      Rooms are very spacious, especially the loft ones with high ceilings. The hotel is well built, beds are comfortable, and the staff is excellent. The location is ideal: far enough from the main road that you don't get bothered by the noise, yet close enough that you can walk to the beach, even if you carry a surfboard, as long as you are reasonably fit: it is a steep and rugged terrain (I find it fun). We particularly appreciated the "quiet after 9pm" policy which is a great plus compared to many hotels in Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen that cater to the party crowd. We were here to relax in a peaceful atmosphere and Canaima Chill House was the perfect getaway for that. It's one of those few places that are better for real than on the photos. Although the slogan includes the word "rustic", the hotel offers full comfort and is very well built. It doesn't have AC but the location on a hill offers natural cooling, complemented by ceiling fans inside the mosquito nets. We stayed 9 days and didn't miss AC once. The staff at Canaima is extremely helpful and goes way beyond the normal call of duty to make sure you have a great experience. Oh, and did I mention that you see plenty of wildlife in the trees surrounding the hotel, including monkeys, birds, iguanas and squirrels? Sometimes the wildlife wakes you up a bit earlier than you'd like... but hey, it's jungle... and if you want to make the best of your stay in Costa Rica you will rise early anyway! I highly recommend Canaima Chill House to any traveler looking for a peaceful, relaxed and beautiful place to stay in Santa Teresa.

      ... remember things, and strangely enough, I could place old photos and where I had taken them! Next task, to find a taxi driver who had an idea of where the community Akom is situated…

      I thought that this would be the tricky part, given that it isn’t even on the map. Luckily, the Indigenous Reserve of Salitre, in which Akom is located, has been developed over the years, with signs in place such as ...

      ... larger and WOW did they put up a fight. The fish that put up the biggest fight was the Red Snapper. We were fishing in about 50 meters of water which is about 150 feet and having to reel these in was a workout. After fighting a Red Snapper for 10-12 minutes every part of your arms and upper body were burning. After three hours of fishing we had caught a total of five Red Snapper, five Mackerel/tuna, and one Jack fish. The largest fish we had was the Red Snapper which ...

      ... And more like a B&B. And probably full (like most things I had inquired about... as it is full-on high season here). But I called anyhow. This very sweet-sounding Costa Rican woman named Vicky answered the phone, and told me that no, she didn't have anything in my price-range for the time I was looking for. I said I understood, but she didn't hang up the phone. She seemed determined to figure out a way to help me. She kept saying that ...

      ... you there is no water in the park (not true). There were quite a lot of white faced monkeys up a tree which were fun to watch, and we then walked up to a lookout over the sea before going to one of the beaches for a swim. We saw some of the lovely big Morpho butterflies, several lizards, some coatis and iguanas. A big beetle landed on Wally's rucksack and I asked a guide what sort it was – he said 'a ...
